Partition with a Linux file system cannot be mounted in Windows


An image of a partition with a Linux file system fails to be mounted in Windows. Acronis True Image says that it cannot assign a drive letter to the partition.


If an image contains a partition with a Linux file system, Windows will not be able to view it, as the Windows OS does not support Linux file systems. As a result, Linux partitions cannot be mounted as virtual drives on a Windows-based PC.


You can restore an image of a Linux partition, however you will still not be able to access it from Windows.
